I wrote to the author recently re the provenance of this image but she didn’t know anything about it as the UK publishers put their own cover together but I did find this related image on the net

      and danced like Minnaloushe!

      The Cat And The Moon by WB Yeats

      THE cat went here and there
      And the moon spun round like a top,
      And the nearest kin of the moon,
      The creeping cat, looked up.
      Black Minnaloushe stared at the moon,
      For, wander and wail as he would,
      The pure cold light in the sky
      Troubled his animal blood.
      Minnaloushe runs in the grass
      Lifting his delicate feet.
      Do you dance, Minnaloushe, do you dance?
      When two close kindred meet.
      What better than call a dance?
      Maybe the moon may learn,
      Tired of that courtly fashion,
      A new dance turn.
      Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
      From moonlit place to place,
      The sacred moon overhead
      Has taken a new phase.
      Does Minnaloushe know that his pupils
      Will pass from change to change,
      And that from round to crescent,
      From crescent to round they range?
      Minnaloushe creeps through the grass
      Alone, important and wise,
      And lifts to the changing moon
      His changing eyes.

    Thank you for including my Texas moon … and for coming by the new blog. I’ve included a link back to you in my Day 2 post.

    We all, each in our own way, danced by the light of this rosy moon and the wonder and universal connection was amazing. Thanks Mo for showing how La Luna looked here over the Sandia Mountains in New Mexico.

    Your scarf is SO beautiful- how it would hold the moon and the wearer together!

    Thank you for the wonderful links and for Minnaloushe. I hadn’t read that for years. Your scarf is just wonderful, and what a moon…
